Yes. And?

Are you connected to the web ?
In terminal you may need to do a

sudo aptitude update or you may need to enable backports under Updates in Software Sources.
What hardware are you trying to get drivers for ?

What's the purpose of having an icon at "System > Admin > Hardware Drivers", if it does nothing!?

Debugging it, reporting / fixing bugs so that it actually does the thing it's supposed to do.

This is the development branch, remember? Things can fail at any time. The whole point is to fix them before release.
